Knowledge of databases and web-mining is a plus. Proficiency in English (written and spoken) is a prerequisite.

We search for critical thinkers that are open-minded, have a collaborative spirit and feel comfortable within an interdisciplinary environment cutting across network science, supply chain management, economics, and complex systems. We encourage you to apply if you are eager to understand supply and production networks on a regional and international level, get your hands on real data and collaborate with industry and policy stakeholders.
